One thing that sets the new 5% Nutrition Kill It RTD Pre-Workout apart from the crowd is the huge 10g of Glycerine per serving. This article will look closely at this ingredient and tell you exactly what it will do for you!
What Is Glycerine?
There may be some confusion about what exactly Glycerine is. First, do not confuse it with the amino acid Glycine. That’s a non-essential amino acid made and used by the body to help make protein. Second, Glycerine is also known as Glycerin and Glycerol. Yep, just like the branded ingredient GlycerSize™ 65% Glycerol Powder. However, in this case, this is not a branded compound.(1,2)
What Does Glycerine Do?
Like other versions of Glycerol, the Glycerine in Kill It RTD will do two very important things. First, it’s an osmolyte. That means it will pull water into the muscles for extreme cell volume. Call it muscle fullness or water-based pumps, but your muscles will look huge. Combine that with 4g of Citrulline, 2g of Taurine, 1g of Betaine, and 750 mg of Nitrosigine®, and you will experience the pumps of a lifetime! Even better, they will be both water-based and nitric oxide pumps.
Glycerine And Hydration
Not only will this powerful ingredient, especially at a whopping 10g, promote massive pumps. It will also dramatically improve hydration. There can be no doubt that dehydration can derail your in-the-gym performance. It will also negatively impact your mental productivity.
Combined with the other osmotic ingredients in Kill It, Glycerine pulls water into the muscles. Combined with electrolyte minerals from Coconut Powder, and the addition of Sodium Citrate, you will experience a state of hyper-hydration. That means optimal performance and productivity.
Other Benefits Of Glycerine
Another benefit of Glycerine includes helping the body maintain core temperature during exercise in hot weather. It also hydrates the skin. In fact, Glycerine is often added to moisturizers and other skin products for that reason. Finally, when added to an RTD, Glycerine adds thickness to the formula and helps sweeten it for better taste.(3,4,5,6)
What Is The Dosing Range Of Glycerine
Typically, you will see Glycerol either as a generic or branded ingredient in regular and pump-based pre-workouts going up to 3-4g. Some companies feature it as a powder or liquid in doses ranging from 10g to 23g.
Get That Massive 3D Look With Glycerine!
Are you training for a hardcore 3D, super-pumped look? Then Glycerine will get the job done as part of the explosive and innovative Kill It RTD Pre-Workout! In later years, the man himself, Rich Piana, stopped lifting heavy and trained for the pump. It's easy to see why. The truth is, you can only lift heavy for so long before you hit a strength ceiling.
To keep moving forward, you have to do something different. You will have to measure progress differently. One way to do that is to train more moderately and chase the pump. Two great ways to apply progression to this kind of training are to limit rest between sets and increase intensity. Of course, this leads to multiple sub-categories. You can manipulate reps or sets. You can manipulate TUT by adding any number of intensity techniques. These are easy to use to continue progressive overload without adding more weight.
Kill It RTD Pre-Workout - The Future Is Here!
